Agree. I'm not sure how easy it will be to fix though. Maybe @hhh can tweak the GTK theme a bit?

Re: bl-exit replacement suggestions

^Ok, I just noticed one thing that might help with this. I am not sure but will try to explain. The problem is that the small dots that kind of mark the choice is nearly invisible. At the least to me.

I have just been editing a couple of documents in Libre Office that were originally saved as docx files. When I were finished with editing and wanted to save them, Libre wanted to know if I wanted them as odf or docx files. To choose one over the other I had to move between them with the arrow keys. The dots were clearly visible there, no problem to recognize them at all. The difference were that the dots were more in the center of the button, and not so close to the margin of the button. Maybe they were a tiny wee bit bigger too.

Could that be a possible tweak to bl-exit? smile

Re: bl-exit replacement suggestions

The yad styling options are limited, as far as I can tell. Just use the shortcuts. Enter for logout, Alt+S for suspend, Alt+b for reboot, Alt+P for Power Off. Pressing Alt when the exit dialog opens shows you the letter highlights. I remap bl-exit to Alt+X so I'm already over the Alt key for the next input.
